Hi.
I'm trying to find a way to add a front camera to VW Jetta 2016 (USA, DSG, SE). I'd like to avoid having a separate monitor, so perfect would be linking it to the existing factory radio monitor. It looks like in this image http://www.autos.ca/car-test-drives...ent/2016-vw-jetta-14tsi-trendline-plus-gw-26/

Where can I find something like that?
I saw a lot of cameras that could be mounted to VW logo in the front, but I wander about connections and usage. Enable by button, or some delay after Reverse > Drive change, or something similar?

Thanks.

I wonder if those two elements could work for me:
  1. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000031618154.html
  2. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001210974713.html
First is a switch that would automatically switch video signal from front/reverse camera, and with the other I maybe could link it to factory radio. Car with factory camera shows video when selected Reverse, and on Drive mode it stays like that for a moment or untill some speed is reached. So combined with logic of this alliexpress module that shows back camera when on R and shows front camera for 15s when switched to D.

For car I think there will be 1 camera but internally (in this switch device) it will show one or the other camera. So car does not need to support the front camera IMO.

Are you able to help me verify if that make sense and will work? Not sure what kind of camera and radio connectors are in Jetta.

Thanks.
